MODULES

The Leadership and Professional Development module will support your strategic career planning and the development of your management and leadership capabilities

The other core modules in semesters one and two (Financial Strategy & Business Operations, Strategic Marketing & Planning, Operations and Global Supply Chain Management, Corporate and International Strategy) integrate a range of business subjects to give you a holistic view on complex real-life business issues at strategic and operational levels.

You'll complete two individual research modules: Management Consultancy Project 1and 2. You'll be supported by specialists from our myFuture Team in negotiating access to a suitable business to conduct research as a management consultant. You'll have the chance to produce business recommendations, develop client management skills, and apply and test your theoretical understanding of management disciplines in a real-life application. You'll also investigate and resolve practical business issues by using robust and academically grounded research methodologies.

The Management Consultancy Project modules also aim to build your in-depth knowledge and understanding in one of five core subject areas: External Environment, People and Organisations, Key Functional Specialism, Customer Orientation and Strategy. You can align the project with your particular area of interest.

The option modules, Innovation, Change & Enterprise, Services Marketing, Human Resources Management and Project Management, will allow you to specialise further.


Learning and Teaching >

The entrants to the programme come from a broad mix of disciplines and backgrounds, which facilitates a multi-perspective, interactive, learning process. The programme attempts to maximise available opportunities for participants to reflect on their knowledge, experience and practice, particularly through a process of peer interaction and team work.  This enables students with limited work experience to benefit from the experience of others and students who are returning to higher from academic skills of more recent graduates.

The integration of UK and international case studies in each module brings an international and cross-cultural dimension into the learning. This leads participants to be more self-aware and to be able to modify and develop their own and others' business practices, as well as to work in diverse teams and an international business context.

To facilitate the progression of students into a management career, there will be a focus on inviting qualified and active management and business practitioners as guest speakers, visiting lecturers and potential employers. Each MBA student will also have an academic tutor to receive advice on their programme of study and how to make it relevant to their individual interests and career aspirations. Personal and career development will be facilitated through the Leadership and Professional Development module, EPO support and an advice from careers advisers. 

As students' progress through the programme, they will be required to demonstrate appropriate levels of subject knowledge and understanding, subject specific skills, intellectual skills and the effective use of transferable/employability skills.

Alumni Stories

"As a mature student I expected to really stand out, but I was just absorbed into the Leeds Trinity community as I soon found there were many others in my boat. I used the fact I was a mature student as a benefit, hopefully not just to me but for my fellow students as I was able to bring real-world experience into academia; I could really relate the theories to my experiences." - Frank Zagajewski
